JW Marriott Khao Lak - Pool Access Room

Hey Guys

Was wondering if anyone had specific tips about pool access room. Seems they come in various types and conditions.

Are there any people have stayed in and recommend in particular?

Thanks

We recently stayed in the 3000 block (3022) these rooms have steps down into the pool but no glass panels or fences, which suited us.

Agree with Parkers, unless you have children, the 3000 block is OK.

Have fun.

All internal fixtures and fittings of pool access rooms is the same. They have loungers and a table on their terrace. The original blocks 1 & 2 near the huge main pool have landscaped area just in front of terrace and you drop down into the pool. The halves of blocks 3 & 4 nearest the beach have open terraces with steps into the pool. The upper halves of these blocks are the family accommodation so have reinforced glass walls and secure door on the terrace separating it from steps down into the pool. The bottom half of block 3 is best if you like sun bathing on the terrace as it receives sun most of the day.

We "upgraded" to a pool access room in the 3000 block upon arrival when we stayed at the JWM. We didn't think it was worth it to be honest.

Biggest benefit is direct pool access. If not interested in that I don't understand why you upgraded to it.

We loved the pool access rooms. It was great to take a quick dip in the day or evening to cool off. Definately worth the extra $$.
